There is only one named woman in this movie. She is (obviously) the love interest, but she is also a total badass. She surfs like a pro, knows how to fire a gun and is never objectified, which is nice. However, it would've been nicer to see a bit more fem-representation!

I would agree with this rating. Katherine Bigelow is badass director and she has a very adrenaline fueled way of directing her movies. The main female lead is a very strong character and has more to offer than the time she is given.
